Jason Ritchie turns his back on American workers (Washington, Dave Reichert, HandiHabitats) - 05/20/14

... administration sent that company a No Match letter requiring their workers to provide valid work authorization. If they can't do that, Crunch Pak won't be able to employ them anymore. Compare the solution Ritchie offers to this problem to what I'd prefer. Under Ritchie's plan, those illegal aliens and millions more would be legalized and could continue to work. Companies that had knowingly...

Toothless Obama admin immigration enforcement: 100s janitors fired, not deported (+how many SEIU members are illegal aliens?) - 11/09/09

... Department of Homeland Security sent no match letters or a variant to around 1200 janitors employed by the major corporation ABM informing those employees that there was a mismatch between their Social Security numbers and other information.

Is the ACLU's official policy to just enforce labor laws (with little or no immigration enforcement)? - 04/03/09

... link; it mostly concerned the no match ruling which was in the news at that time. I didn't post about this at the time because he didn't come right out and say anything that damaging; listening to it again I still can't find that much that would warrant making a video about. However, he seems to be implying that the ACLU isn't just the "defender of the Constitution" that we've been led to...

ACLU controlling Obama policy? ("Transition Recommendations" wants most immigration enforcement halted, + much more) - 03/17/09

In November, the American Civil Liberties Union released "Actions For Restoring America: Transition Recommendations for President‐Elect Barack Obama" (aclu.org/transition) listing things they wanted him to do the first day, within the first 100 days, and within the first year. Several of their proposals would halt immigration enforcement to a great extent, pending "review". That "review" would...

The ruling, issued by U.S. District Judge...

Feinstein, Reid, growers to push AgJobs amnesty (yes, again) - 08/23/07

Senator Dianne Feinstein apparently gave a speech today where she promised to bring back the AgJobs farmworkers amnesty scheme, which would cover at least 1.5 current illegal aliens. Harry Reid already promised to bring it back, perhaps attached to some other bill such as the Farm Bill. Step one in the plan for passage calls for farmers and their allies to emphasize anew the dangers of losing an...

Bush admin scam: Social Security "no match" letters will have little effect ("tough" new DHS policy) - 08/17/07

This has to be read in its entirety to be believed. The Bush administration can't even keep a scam going for a few days. Days after unveiling a major crackdown on businesses that hire illegal immigrants, the Bush administration is now quietly admitting that its most heavily touted weapon in pursuing employers will be virtually useless. ...But Homeland Security officials acknowledged this week...
